Powder paint
By Stuart Anderson

Tube tyers are opening up their eyes to the possibilities of adding an extra kick to their favourite patterns. As fishermen, we all know that colour definitely makes a difference. Our new custom blended Powder Paints gives you the freedom to colour your favourite metal tubes or bead heads. Unlike other companies that sell coloured tubes themselves, we give you the freedom of colouring your own tubes. Gone are the days when you had to order minimum quantities of coloured tubes!

The process is simple:

1. Place your Bottle, Ridged Bottle, Shumakov, Cone Head, Barbell, Nubby, Bullet, standard metal tube, or Micro Tube on the tip of your mandrel.

2. Heat the tube approximately one inch above an open flame for about 30-45 seconds.

3. Dip your item into the Powder. Shake off any excess.

4. The paint will stick to the metal. If it looks a pit patchy or rough in texture, simply place back over the flame until it become shiny and smooth. The tube should harden and cool in less than 2 minutes.

5. For extra durability (though not usually necessary) coat the painted area with clear nail polish.
